the obamacare headlines from the obamacare punch lines these days. paper applications, 800 numbers, applying by fax; obamacare appears to be leading us boldly, boldly into the 1980's. remember before this thing launched, the administration swore up and down that obamacare was ready to go. democratic leaders in congress told americans that the law's implementation was fabulous, that obamacare was wonderful. the president reassured everyone that it was working the way it was supposed to. and, of course, washington democrats bragged about their fancy, new web site, the web site that cost taxpayers $100 million, $200 million, $300 million? well, no one's quite sure. that's just one of the unanswered questions we hope they'll clarify soon. now, to be fakers the president likes -- to be fair, the president likes to say obamacare is about more than just a web site. he's right. that is why fixing a web site won't solve the larger problem here. the larger problem is obamacare itself. the larger problem is what the few people who actually have signed up for coverage have discovered about this law. the

many people enrolled on obamacare, p that's an answer that the a president of the united statesom could get.ople if they wanted to. i'm surprised at the number. it isre obviously low. but i love to imagine the scene of what it would be like to govt in on wednesday morning to the oval office for the morning briefing for the president and to have to tell him that onlyg six people signed up forave obamacare. i mean, that would have been a very embarrassing moment. >> they had to know. they know exactly what the v number was day one, day two. if you have six per day in order to get to the 7 million you need, it's 28,417 years. no wonder they're holding back the number. even if the number is 6,000 or 60,000 when they finally release them, it doesn't matter. the system -- it will never be where they need it to be in march. they have to, right now, they probable will he should do isprb sooner rather than later say we're going to delay it.han either delay the individual mandate or being penalized. not >> juan, they'll have to do one of the two. what do you think they'll do, if anything? how do
to hit the pause button on rollout of obamacare amid brand new troubles with the federal health care website. welcome to the monday edition of "happening now." i'm jon scott. >> hi, everybody, great to see you today. i'm jenna lee. anxiety is rising across the country as americans experience growing frustration with this dysfunctional website. now the outages are going to become a regular thing over the next few days. the obama administration announcing that the website will be down every day from 1:00 to five a.m. eastern time while it is being fixed. if you're out on the west coast, by 10 p.m. tonight you won't have access to the website for several hours. so no late night shopping for any of you on the west coast. senator kelly ayote is calling on president obama to order a timeout. the new new hampshire republican wants a bipartisan group to convene about the problems with the website and the law. there are serious concerns about obamacare's long term financial liability. early numbers from state exchanges, nearly all of those enrolled are being funneled into medicaid, not insura
and congressional democrats have insisted time and again that the obamacare insurance exchanges would be tested, secure, and ready to go on october 1. the president even told the american public that signing up online would be as easy as a few simple keystrokes. perhaps the president has not tried logging onto the website himself, because he and his political appointees are not required to join obamacare. let me repeat that -- the president and his team are not required to join obamacare. unfortunately, the rest of the country doesn't have that luxury. too many americans still cannot even access the online exchanges , and for the few that have, their experience is sticker shock. the president told us obamacare is more than a website. i agree. it is more than just a website, and the problems run far deeper than a few technological glitches. when middle-class families are getting hit with massive premium increases and outrageous to dr. bowles, it is more than just a website -- outrageous to dr. eductibles,is -- d it is more than just a website. when hard-working americans are seeing their hours c
back online. thank you, peter doocy. martha: number of obamacare enrollees is reportedly very low and somewhat a mystery as to how many of them are actually out there. open enrollment started october 1, so little over a full month now. he white house has not released any hard numbers on it. they say it will come in the middle of november. according to documents released by the oversight committee, only six people signed up on day one. the next day it went up to 2.48 people. most of those people who signed up were not paying at all, they were enrolling in medicaid by huge numbers in terms of how out of whack that part of this is. stuart varney joins me now. stuart, these are nowhere near the numbers we heard were needed to make this solvent. stuart: that is precisely right, martha. you need the biggest pool possible with as much money as possible. that is why under obamacare everybody's got to have insurance, they want your money. if young, healthy people don't pay into this system, there's not much money going in. if a lot of older, sicker people go into the system, they're taking
on obamacare's botched rollout. internal memos are showing only six people, six actually signed up on day one of the health care exchange program. good morning everybody, i'm martha maccallum here in "america's newsroom". >> i'm gregg jarrett in for bill hemmer. the obama administration is not actually denying the information. the health and human services department is down playing released documents. let me quote them. they appear to be notes. do not include enrollments, statistics. we will release enrollment stats on monthly basis after coordinating information from different sources paper, online, call centers, verifying with insurers and collecting data from states. martha: byron york, "washington examiner" and fox news contributor. what do you make about the number six. >> now we know why the administration is secretive about the numbers. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius was asked by congress about this she wouldn't give it. we know the number was beyond embarrassing. six people on day one. had a total of 248 by the next day. this has really stunned a lot of people.
and are -- health care rollout are creating a new pact calling themselves the quote, obamacare losers. >> and john kerry wrapped up his visit to egypt. they said their relations with the u.s. were in turmoil. was his visit enough to ease some of the tensions? we will have a live report. >> and we have a fiesty panel here to discuss the latest in on believable case in -- in on believable case in utah of a doctor accused of killing his wife. they layout why and how the doctor put his plan into motion. first we begin with details in the shooting at los angeles international airport that left a tsa agent dead. as cell phone video from inside that terminal really shows you the chaos that unfolded. check this out. >> on the floor! on the floor now! on the floor! >> imagine if you were there. hundreds of folks in the moments just after the 23-year-old accused gunman opened fire inside that airport. police are saying the suspect shot the tsa agent at point blank range before turning his gun on the crowd. and returning to shoot the agent again. there were at least five other people injured in friday's s

now. bye-bye. jon: we begin with brand new stories and breaking news. jenna: the obamacare rollout worse than anyone thought apparently. embarrassingly low sign up numbers in one report. how the white house is explaining them. survivors of the benghazi terror attack preparing to break silence despite government best efforts to keep them quiet when we could hear their stories from the ground. >>> the holiday shopping season is officially underway, november first, that is what happens, right? we'll explain why you could see the deepest discounts ever and before black friday even rolls around. it is all "happening now" jenna: some shocking new information this morning about how rough apparently the rollout of the obamacare exchanges really is as new documents show you could almost count the number of people who enrolled in the first day on one hand. again one report, but a stunning one at that. great to see you, everybody, i'm jenna lee. jon: those numbers are unbelievable. i'm jon scott. for weeks the administration told us millions of people visited healthcare.gov. but they dodged a
of obamacare under congress' general taxing power. the court noted specifically that, quote, even if the taxing power enables congress to impose a tax on not obtaining health insurance, any tax must still comply with other requirements in the constitution, unquote. mr. speaker, i want to read that one more time. even if the taxing power enables congress to impose a tax on not obtaining health insurance, any tax must still comply with other requirements in the constitution, unquote. in short, mr. speaker, obamacare was upheld as a tax. the supreme court did not and has not yet considered a challenge to the affordable care act's taxing provisions on the grounds that it violated the origination clause in the united states constitution. and, mr. speaker, it most certainly did exactly that. mr. speaker, the origination clause is found in article 1, section 7 of the constitution. and it states, quote, all bills for raising revenue shall originate in the house of representatives, unquote. in creating obamacare, senator harry reid took an entirely unrelated bill, h.r. 3590, containing just 714 words, a

of them on obamacare. for the president, that's not good news. look at the latest poll from gallop. only 40% of voters approve of his job performance. 53% disapprove. the obamacare rollout disaster clearing hurting the administration. but for the left, it's not obama, not the president who should be taking the blame. it's those evil insurance. here is the brother of rahm emanuel, an architect of obamacare. >> the law doesn't say to the insurance industry, you drop coverage. insurance industry decides how to make money. when the private company decides they're going to drop people and put them in the exchange you blame president obama, he's not responsible for that. stuart: you've got to blame the private insurers not just emanuel saying that. here is the white house advisor trying to explain why millions will lose their current health plans. >> if you have a plan before obamacare, you can keep that. if your plan is downgraded or cancelled, you can't. stuart: pure spin. plans are canceled by the million because obamacare makes them illegal. fox news reporting that 3.7 million people have
